Close to Kos Town, this hotel offers a great choice of pools, along with easy access to the beach.
The pools are what really sell this hotel. There are four main ones, each with its own draw – for example, one’s adults only, while another houses the splash park. Elsewhere, you’ve got five restaurants, including a Greek place.
Location-wise, the hotel is in a quiet spot just a couple of minutes’ walk from a sandy beach. And when you fancy exploring, it’s a few minutes’ drive to the island capital, Kos Town.

Excellent Family Holiday, Great Hotel, Great Staff Especially Kostas!!!!
We got a good deal in mid May 2017 to stay at the hotel for 10 days. It was the start of the season and we were not sure what the weather would be like but as we had two little ones we did not want it too hot. It ended up being a perfect time of year to go. Hotel and grounds are excellent. Food is good and staff are fantastic. Hotel is kept to a very good standard and is very clean and gardens and pool areas are always kept very tidy. There were many nice staff that we met but the most professional and most charming member of staff would have to be Kostas. He went out of his way to make my family feel welcome and make sure we were having a good time. He managers the pool restaurant in the morning and the Greek restaurant in the evening. He is very good at his job and makes sure everything is as it should be for the guests. He is a valuable asset to the hotel and one of the reasons to return. Great swimming pools. Also you must go and hire a bike from steve bikes across the road we had a great time. Also if you want the best day ever when you are staying at the hotel do this. On a nice day hire the 2/4 seater beach buggy from stevebikes next door then travel upto a town called Zia. ( amazing place) have a meal at Olympia 2 and take in the views. Finish of the day by driving down to paradise beach in the south of the island. The shows in the evening were good and the animation team worked hard all day long to make sure everyone was happy. Thank you to Louis, Jess, Emily best of luck in the future. All in all great places to come with the family. Excellent pools, water park, and near to the beach tons of fun to be had here ! Big thanks to Kostas, keep up the good work, see you again one day :)More

Like many, we booked his hotel on the basis of the great reviews. We are 5 days into a fortnight, booked through Thompsons. This morning I could have had flights home for 35 quid and almost booked, had it not been for my 4 year olds' protestations. Issues encountered are rude bar staff, poor quality beer and spirits, mediocre food, restaurant booking system and the fact that the hotel is so spread out. Be prepared to walk miles each day just getting about. I have given up on the restaurant booking system. We tried to enter the buffet last night and were told we should have booked? Booking as far as I was aware, was for ala carte only. Not the buffet for which I have paid, as part of my all inclusive package. It was a real WTF moment! This allied to regularly rude service from the pool bar staff have left me disappointed. An example of this is when ordering a Vodka and coke the bar man poured a half pint of vodka, then had a go at me, for me not telling him to stop!! This incidentally was my first attempt at ordering a drink, on my first day. I went to reception to order a taxi, which the receptionist couldn't manage and handed me a bus timetable instead. This was at 7 PM and is a basic service that any hotel should be able to provide. The manner in which I was dealt with left me feeling that I was a nuisance, rather than a guest, who had paid 3 grand for a holiday. To resolve the matter I went to the little bar along the road, had a quick drink and a taxi was there within 5 minutes. There isn't much life to the place, certainly no buzz. The majority of the guests aren't from the UK, but Eastern Europe, which limits the chance of bumping into other UK families in the evening. If you want real alcohol, ie spirits or beer, you have to pay 6.50E for a gin and tonic. The Gin is genuine, but the mixers are watery from the drinks gun. Heineken is also available at the pool for an extra charge. The AI beer is poor. My advice do not waste a penny on premium drinks, as they are wasted by the poor quality mixers. To salvage my holiday, I have resolved to sleep in the hotel and use the pool and waterpark. Food drinks and entertainment will be sought in Kos Town. Only positives are the excellent housekeeping, decent gym and great water park, which serves pretty tasty snacks at lunchtime. More
Great family holiday
Amazing holiday for us. Me, my wife, 1 year old daughter, and 3 year old son. No place is perfect, but it's close enough and gave us every bit of enjoyment we needed. Blue Lagoon Kids club - AMAZING. Our boy is quite shy. Michael from the kids club gradually built a relationship with Ollie to give him the confidence to go to kids club and be left to play with him and other children. Cannot recommend this anymore, Michael was superb with Ollie! (We booked with TUI and received NO direct contact from them to try to get Ollie involved, and on the 2nd day we took him to find out it's a 1 out 1 in service, so when it's busy he cannot get in!!) that's no good. Anyway, thanks to Michael, you have made ollies holiday so much better and you do s super job! The food is all amazing. If you are a picky eater then you might find it "samey". We did not. From Greek salads, fresh breads, meats, etc, there was always something on offer. Water park was amazing for kids! Pool was slightly cold in morning/early afternoon (but refreshing) but around 2/3pm perfect. A few negatives (everywhere has to have some) would be - room fridges not stocked daily as part of all inclusive, (i.e.) water, beer, etc. The Chinese restaraunt - NO alcohol as part of all inclusive. If you put 5 stars on your front door then this implies there cannot be better? Give all inclusive drinks to all restaraunts, guests expect this, and it will be so near perfection as a holiday resort. We are 100% coming again next year as the positives outweigh the negatives. Now, my final part. PLEASE enjoy a drink at the reception bar outside. There is a beautiful (young) lady called Ntina serving everyday. She works tirelessly, smiles everyday, and we built a great relationship with her, she made our kid free time very special. For me and my wife, Ntina was a big part of our holiday, she made us feel special and looked after us constantly serving us beer, Long Island ice tea, and cosmopolitans. She was great with the kids and cannot speak anymore highly of her. She is a BIG part why we are coming again next year - service! Top class. Thank you ntina!More
Great week away!
Just got back from an amazing week away at Blue Lagoon in Kos. The hotel is amazing and staff are lovely and friendly. Food was great with a variety of restaurants to suit your taste, the Italian was a standout for us! The location is ideal, right near the beach and a few minutes drive from Kos town, you can hire quad bikes and buggies from the shop nearby if you want to venture out further, well worth doing. The animation team make this hotel, they work really hard day and night to keep everyone entertained, especially Sophie! Always chatty and smiling, she was great with children, they were always following her around! Will be returning to blue lagoon!More
Great family holiday
We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the blue lagoon. Overall we had a fantastic time, and the facilities are outstanding. I have listed below all the main points. The one thing that puts us off going back however is that a lot of parents who go here seem to think they can have a couple of weeks off parenting, meaning the children run round like wild animals screaming the place down and bothering other families. We have children ourselves, however ours know that in a restaurant you sit down! That's the only negative point from the holiday.... Rooms Spacious, good air con system, loads of English channels on the TV. Showers were hot and powerful, and the hairdryer in the bathroom worked fine (I have stayed in other places where the hairdryer is so poor it can take almost an hour to dry long hair!). We were on the ground floor in the satellite block and had a nice terrace area with partitions to make it private. Beds were comfy and the staff were more than happy to provide extra pillows when we asked. The cleaning staff are brilliant, always say hello and clean the room thoroughly. Pools The main pool is huge, temperature of the water is just right for cooling off after sunbathing in 35 degree heat! The animation team are based at the main pool too so there are always activities to get involved with if that's your thing. Plenty of sunbeds so no need to reserve, even if you get there at lunchtime you will get beds together. The satellite area has 2 pool areas, one a swimming pool and the other a kids splash zone with a pirate ship and slides. Again, plenty of beds and no need to reserve. Towels are provided by the hotel, you can change them daily at the towel point near main reception or the satellite area reception. Food & drink The pool restaurant was our favourite for lunch. The choice is so vast it's hard to choose what to have! The chefs are always cooking fresh grilled meat on the BBQ. The salad selection is lovely, they literally have anything you want. The pizzas are freshly cooked, and they have dishes such as stronganoff, dauphinois potatoes, soup & fresh bread....literally far too much to list it all! In the evening they have a different theme each evening, Mexican night was our favourite. The main restaurant was like a zoo. We ate here once and never again! The Greek place had a great selection of food, the moussaka and grilled aubergines were fab, as well as the salad bar. Service a little slower here than other restaurants but nothing to complain about. There's a lovely bar outside this restaurant for pre dinner drinks. The Italian restaurant was lovely and it's nice to be served, however families can only dine here Tuesdays and Fridays. After seeing the way some people let their children behave I can see why they keep this for adults on most nights but it is a little insulting for us because our kids are well behaved at meal times. The pork fillet and the swordfish were the best dishes we ate here. Breakfast We ate breakfast at the Italian restaurant. They have everything you could possibly want, including fresh fruit, toast, eggs, bacon, sausages, fresh bread, yogurt, pastries and much more! Piano bar We went to the piano bar after dinner every night. The staff are lovely and really look after you, constantly checking you are ok for drinks. They have a singer on every night which is a nice touch. Waterpark We loved the waterpark! The lazy river is fun and our children loved the slides there. You can get lunch here too and ice creams/pancakes. Surroundings The whole site is kept immaculate, and there are always maintenance staff, gardeners and cleaning staff around. We had a brilliant time!More
